Life Sized Number Lines Teach Math Concepts

Russell Elementary School kindergartners in Gina Johanning's class took to the playground to make life-sized number lines.

By drawing out the number lines, students were better able to visualize the math concepts of addition and subtraction. 

Students moved along the number line by jumping, hopping, skipping, and walking to find answers to addition and subtraction problems.
